After graduating from The Annenberg School at the University of Pennsylvania, Bill Yahraus began his filmmaking career in San Francisco as a member of the documentary unit at KQED. He then teamed up with filmmakers Michael Anderson, Paul Jacobs and Saul Landau to make documentaries collectively (The Jail, Song for Dead Warriors, Robert Wall: Ex-FBI Agent). In Los Angeles he formed Focal Point Films with Chris Burrill and David Davis, where he made the award winning Homeboys about the Cuatro Flats gang. A career in feature film editing followed including such films as Pass the Ammo, Heartland, Country, The Long Walk Home, and Silent Tongue. Although continuing to consult on documentaries during this period, including the Academy Award winning Broken Rainbow, and The Samoan Heart for the PBS « Pacific Diaries » series, Travels With Tarzan marked Bill’s return to his roots as a documentary filmmaker. Since 1999 he has taught film production at the University of Southern California. When not behind the camera or in front of the editing system, Bill can be found on his horse « The General, » exploring the high desert surrounding Jumpin’ Jack Ranch.
